    Overcame a FURIOUS leg attack from Gaethje there.

    Who gets the next crack at the LW strap?!?

    If Tony isn't ready to fight Khabib then yeah, Poirier deserves it

    I think yes. Unless Lee does something insane to Barboza or Conor comes back to fight Khabib, Poirier seems most likely.

    He beat up a punching bag but no, Conor deserves first crack.

    Tony is out for a while dude. If Khabob doesn't fight before then, he's no better than Conor

    Huge Poirier fan here and I don't think he earned a title shot from this win. But, he deserves one for how long he's been grinding.

    Khabib isn't fighting until Sept or November, Mcgregor or Tony will be ready by then, if neither guy is ready then sure throw in Porier.

    Conor is in jail and Ferg is on the shelf. Yes Poirier gets the next shot

    He doesn’t stand a chance against Khabib.. The Russian has bigger fish to fry in my opinion

    Tony wont be ready until a year minimum, and I dont think Poirier will remain in the sidelines until then. Likely fighting Lee if he wins or else hes going straight to Khabib.

    Yeah but Poirier was beating Eddie in what should have been a DQ win for him

    Looks like Ferg may have to fight in another title eliminator.
